The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) revised their guidelines (in 2009) in regards to endorsements and testimonials to protect the public from any information that is intentionally misleading or errant that has been paid for by a group or company. Since this blog is a source of income and may occasionally incorporate testimonials or endorsements, I felt it was important to disclose the following to you, my readers:
The content of my blog is a source of income for me and may be used to promote products, business or services. I will only choose to promote products/businesses and services that I have used and that I feel will be beneficial to my readers. Products provided to me by advertising partners for my review are given to me free of charge with no cost to me. This does not ensure a positive review of the product in any way.
You can trust me. I will always give you my honest opinion about a product/business or service whether or not I am partnering with the service provider and/or receiving payment to do so. My number one priority is to give you complete accuracy.
In my blog, there may be mentions of associated products/businesses/services from time to time but not in every reference. I hold myself to the highest standard of integrity and will diligently strive to deliver helpful, encouraging and enjoyable content while generating a small profit to compensate for my time, ideas and research. I love and appreciate my readers and make it my goal to be honest in every post that I write.
